The Crazy World of Arthur Brown were an English psychedelic rock band formed by singer Arthur Brown in 1967.
Their song "Fire" (released in 1968 as a single) was one of the one-hit wonders in the United Kingdom and United States in the 1960s. "Fire" sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc.

The line-up practically dissolved on US tour in 1969. Crane and Palmer left to form Atomic Rooster, Greenwood (known as Sean Nicholas during his stay in CWOAB) went on to Khan (as Nick Greenwood), Theaker to Love and then Rustic Hinge, and Brown to Kingdom Come.
The band re-formed in 2000 and released Tantric Lover.
